Here is this summer's reading challenge list. There are several on my list that I've read before (I hope that is okay). I feel like I need a refresher.

However, Saint Joan, As You Like It, Twelth Night, Persuasion, Hard Time, The Mill on the Floss, A Passage to India, Return of the Native, The Marble Faun and The Ambassadors are all books that I will be reading for the very first time!!! I am so excited!

I can tell you that As You Like It, Hard Times, A Passage to Inda, Twelth Night, and Return of the Native are all great books. Nice list!

Nice list! I don't think there's any right or wrong - originally it was just 2 books a week for summer.

Nice list. I'm not sure there's a Shakespeare play I haven't read - or seen performed. They really are fabulous timeless tales.

Wonderful list - I'm looking forward to your take on A Passage to India, especially.

But I don't see why you couldn't have worked some bunny feet into the mix.
